Tree Planting

Saugeen Conservation purchases the majority of tree seedlings from Sommerville Tree Nursery near Alliston. Seedlings vary from 6-18 inches in size and are 1-4 years old. Common uses of tree seedlings include; windbreaks, shelterbelts, and the reforesting of marginal or fragile lands.

To place an order for trees to plant yourself, please complete the Tree Order Form. The minimum seedling order is 100 trees with a minimum of 50 trees/ species. Tree seedlings are reserved on a first come, first serve basis.

Please complete the Tree Planting Form (above), if you wish to order trees and have them planted by the Conservation Authority. Forestry staff will contact you to arrange a site visit to discuss your planting project.
